Travel Adaptor for Jamaica

The electrical sockets used in Jamaica are type A and type B. These are 2 variants of the same socket - one grounded (with an earth pin) and the other ungrounded. You will therefore need a UK 3 pin to type A/B adaptor in order to plug in your appliances.

Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Warning triangle Voltage - The mains voltage in Jamaica is 110 V which is incompatible with most UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%). Check any appliances that you wish to use carefully to see what voltage is specified. Items such as laptops will often specify "100 - 240V" either on the equipment or the power supply (if it has one). If not then you will need a transformer to operate your appliance.

Frequency - The frequency in Jamaica is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.
